If you're struggling with dark under eye circles, you're not the only one. Yes, even Kris Jenner's second born, Kim Kardashian herself, struggles with them.

However, I've got bad news for you, dark circles are hereditary and there is only so much an eye cream can do.

If you don't want to go down the non-surgical route, Kim Kardashian has shared her method of covering them with makeup in a five minute tutorial that I made all the notes on.

In the video Kim explains that she's wearing no foundation, or concealer so she can see both her incredible skin and dark circles.

Detailing her five minute look when she doesn't want to wear a ton of makeup, but wants to look put together, Kim explains that she always starts with moisturiser.

Next, she uses the matte side of her KKW Beauty highlighter stick and covers her under eyes in a a rough upside down triangle shape.

She then uses her contour stick to accentuate her cheebones and "shorten" her forehead, because fun fact - Kim loves a "short forehead".

Although Kim uses a stippling brush to blend out her contour, she prefers to use a damp beauty sponge to blend out her under eye concealer.

Her final trick involves using the brush she blended out her contour with, to gently buff the edges of her under eye concealer. This stops the area looking too light and fake.

Unfortunately, due to the hell that is the corona virus, KKW Beauty has paused shipments, so if you can't get your hands on Kim's Creme Contour and Highlight sticks, I have found an alternative matte concealer for you.
